DENTAL BONDING

 

Cosmetic imperfections such as chips, gaps, or stains can diminish the beauty of your smile and impact your self-confidence. Dental bonding offers a convenient, safe, and cost-effective way to: 

  • Repair chipped or cracked teeth

  • Adjust the size of your teeth

  • Reduce unsightly gaps or spaces between teeth

  • Hide discoloration or stained areas on the tooth’s surface

Under Dr. Masone's care, the results of dental bonding can often be indistinguishable from natural teeth, as the composite materials actually bond, or become one with the rest of the tooth. Dental bonding uses tooth-colored biocompatible materials—generally a composite of plastic or resin—to repair teeth, leaving them strong and your smile as beautiful as ever. A specialized LED laser or UV light is used to cure the bonding material, giving it the same strength as a natural tooth. 

Dental bonding is a good solution for minor chips and cracks. It doesn't provide the same longevity as porcelain veneers, but the procedure is much less complicated and can usually be done without drilling or significantly reshaping the tooth. This makes dental bonding ideal for teenagers, who need to wait until teeth have finished developing before choosing a more permanent form of restoration. 

Enhance Your Smile In A Single Visit

 

Feeling insecure about your smile is a common issue in the U.S. Compared to other cosmetic dentistry options, dental bonding is a much more affordable treatment. This procedure can conceal a range of concerns, including gaps, stains, cracks, and disproportionate teeth. Dental bonding involves a gentle etching process, making it a reversible treatment. In contrast, Dr. Masone will need to reshape the tooth before placing a porcelain veneer. At Denture & Dental Services we can perform dental bonding in a single visit. Since there is minimal preparation involved, the process typically takes less than an hour to complete.

While dental bonding can serve many purposes, it is only a viable solution for minor dental imperfections. This treatment is commonly used in conjunction with other restorative procedures to strengthen teeth. Dr. Masone will provide a complete evaluation to determine whether dental bonding is the right fit for you. 

Dental Bonding Process

 

Dr. Masone and his staff are highly trained and experienced to perform dental bonding procedures as efficiently and comfortably as possible. At Denture & Dental Services, we will walk you through each step of the extraction process including:

  1. Treatment Planning. You will first meet with Dr. Masone to discuss your cosmetic goals and concerns. He can use this information to design a personalized treatment plan.

  2. Tooth Preparation. We will clean the tooth to remove any traces of plaque or bacteria.

  3. Color Matching. Dr. Masone will them shade-match the composite resin material to match the surrounding teeth and achieve optimal results.

  4. Application. Dr. Masone will gently etch each tooth being treated and apply the resin, carefully molding it to achieve the desired shape and size. This allows the composite materials to bond to the tooth.

  5. Curing. Using a specialized light, Dr. Masone will perform the curing process to harden the resin.

  6. Polish. As a final step, Dr. Masone will polish the treated teeth to match the shine of natural enamel. This ensures the most realistic results.

Advantages & Drawbacks

Advantages:

  • It is a quick process, which typically lasts less than one hour.

  • It does not reduce the tooth’s original structure and is relatively inexpensive.

  • Composite resins come in many different shades and provide better matching of shades to the natural color of your teeth.

Drawbacks:

  • Composite dental bonds are not as durable and long-lasting as veneers and dental crowns and may need to be re-touched or replaced in the future.

  • Dental bonds stain more easily and therefore require proper care and regular cleaning.
